Author Biography - Edmund Wright

Elizabeth Wright is a fellow of Girton College, Cambridge. Her main work is in psychoanalytic literary criticism and she has written extensively in this area. She is author of Psychoanalytic Criticism: Theory in Practise (1984; second edition 1998), Post-modern Brecht: A Representation (1989), and she is also the editor of Feminism and Psychoanalysis: A Critical Dictionary (1992) and co-editor of Coming Out of Feminism? (1998). Edmond Wright is a poet and free-lance philosopher. He has published regularly in the philosophical journals on language, perception, and epistemology. He has written The Horwich Hennets (1976) and The Jester Hennets (1981), and he is the editor of New Representationalisms: Essays in the Philosophy of Perception (1993). Slavoj Zizek is a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His most recent works include Tarrying with the Negative: Kant, Hegel and the Critique of Ideology, The Plague of Fantasies, and The Ticklish Subject: A Treatise on Political Ontology. Slavoj Zizek has over the last decade become something of a cultural phenomenon, variously described as 'one of the most arresting, insightful and scandalous thinkers in recent memory', 'the Giant of Ljubljana... the best intellectual high since Anti-Oedipus'. His work is a flamboyant mix of Hegel and Hitchcock, Schelling and science fiction, Kant and Courtly Love, Stalin and Stephen King, all of which is strongly seasoned with lacanian psychoanalysis. As a consequence, it is also one of the most lucid and persuasive readings of Lacan's difficult thought.
